Bio and Links
Bio Photo The following is Norm's bio; however, he died on December 19, 2011. I, Yvonne, am his wife and may or may not continue his work with collecting photos and adding memorials. However, I can edit if necessary and transfer (once I figure out how). Thanks!

I'm always happy to help people in any way I can. Not retired, just tired, I keep very busy with a variety of part-time jobs: driving school bus (as a substitute after five years as a route driver) and transit bus, owning and operating a music store and a music publishing business, composing and arranging music, designing and maintaining websites, computer/data work for an attorney, member of the South Coast Education Service District Board of Directors, volunteer band teacher at the middle school and high school (we don't have a music teacher on the faculty right now), and more. I even do windows! I presently live in Gold Beach, OR, with my wife and four cats (three were rescues) but get over to the Medford area (97501) every so often to visit family, so I can snap pictures there too.

I will be delighted to transfer any memorials I have created to anyone more closely related.

Hello Yvonne:

Thank-you for the transfer of Irene Eastham Mateer.

I submitted a dates/places edit for Maude Mateer based on data I gleaned from her death certificate posted on her memorial. The death certificate informant is George C. Mateer, Irene's husband. I heard my mother often speak of "George & Irene" living in Gold Beach, OR.

The DC says that Maude Mateer resided in Gold Beach for eight (8) months before her death. I assume that Maude moved there to be taken care of in her final days. There is essentially no doubt that she was George's mother.

Greetings Yvonne:

I am writing to request a transfer to me of the memorial for Irene Eastham Mateer (67426425). She was my mother's half-sister, first born daughter of my grandfather James Zachary Eastham. I am working on linking my mother to her half-siblings, and linking my maternal grandfather to his two (2) sets of children.

I want to express my appreciation to you, and posthumously to your late husband Norm, for initiating a memorial for my maternal aunt. It was delightful finding my grandfather's first daughter's memorial. A "finding a needle in the haystack" experience!
